's lead -- seven days later, and paul ryan still can't handle the truth. one week after president obama crushed the gop, congressman paul ryan returned to his day job on capitol hill today, carrying his own bags, like much of the republican party, he still seems dazed about the national rejection he took. and in an interview he told a local tv station what it felt like to lose. >> what it had become clear to us as things went on, in avirginia and ohio weren't coming together, that it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> and what did that feel like for you? what -- >> it was very disappointing. we had good days, bad days. it was a great experience. i'm very fortunate to have had this experience, but losing never feels good. >> no, losing doesn't feel good. but not learning the lessons of that loss isn't good either. at his core this election was about fairness, giving, everyone a fair shot. congressman ryan doesn't -- he doesn't get it. >> was this a referendum on your budget plan, do you think? >> i don't think we lost it on those budget is
a fire brand in his party. the man who ran for vice president, paul ryan. >> congressman paul ryan, is he the leader of the republican party now? >> i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy guy. >> i wouldn't think so. john boehner laughing in the face that the leader of the republican party from here on out might be paul ryan. that guy? the republican party pick its new face, its new leader after their electoral disaster. that's going to be an amazing thing to watch. here's just a case in point. it was an overall electoral disaster for republicans to lose the presidency. it was thought to be impossible for them to lose the presidency. nobody since the great depression has been reelected as president with an unemployment rate like the one we have now. but barack obama manage d to do it. just take as a case in point. the tremendous republican disaster in the united states senate. i mean, they had a bad night on tuesday night. but in the senate, it was a sure bet that the republicans were supposed to retake control of the senate this year. a sure bet. they are only defending ten seats. no
. the convention did not so -- to not go so great, especially clint eastwood. paul ryan was a pretty strong collect -- pretty strong selection and was a strong campaigner and pleased the conservative base. on the other hand, the challenger did not when wisconsin, so it didn't pay off and that regard. but the first debate did pay off. romney came in well prepared. for a lot of people predisposed to not like him, he came off as presidential and smart and comfortable with himself. it was obvious the president prepared for the wrong debate. he prepared for romney to take a host of positions he did not put forth in that first debate. -- he was not able to keep it in that debate that followed. three quick narrative that turned out to be true but the american public. americans want to be helpful. during america -- during an election like this, they want to be inspired and told the world can be better. this is the main reason obama was let the first time around. had it was a lot tougher the second time because we're still experiencing a downturn, but he said stick with me and we can do this together. romne
. now, that's a big paul ryan line. and this is a fantasy. the fact of the matter is, we have a government in this country that does some things. and most of what mitt romney's objecting to is government. >> was there a racial component here? and i ask that question, because mitt romney is talking about giving more tax breaks to the wealthiest americans, but president obama can't have a plan for young people or african-americans or hispanics? how else do you read it? >> well, it's the same -- look, paul ryan did an interview just this week where he was talking about the urban areas voting in a certain way. and it seems that this is the fantasy, the delusion that they've decided to carry on. that they didn't lose because their ideas were bad, day didn't lose because they made mistakes. in fact, in this call, mitt romney complimented his campaign. they lost because somehow the 47% was given so many gifts that it grew into 51%. >> does it make it harder for the republican party to patch up their image and their vision for the future when they are going to be dogged by comments li
is talking about giving more tax breaks. >> paul ryan did an interview just this week where he was talking about the urban areas voting in a certain way. it seems that this is the fantasy, the delusion they've decided to carry on. they doesn't lose because their ideas were bad, they doesn't lose because of mistakes, they lost because somehow the 47% was given so many gifts that it dwru into -- got into 51%. >> they are going to be dogged by comments like this. it's not inclusive. how. >> we have republicans across the country saying we have to reconnect and connect with people young. dollar this gave them. >> john nichols, great to you have with us tonight. thanks so much. >> there's a lot more coming up in the next half hour of "the ed show." >> in my own personal experience, it was very important for me to elect young people and encourage people to come and when they come here to give them opportunity to serve. >> 2012 is the year of the woman in congress. tonight north dakota's first female senator heidi highcamp joins me exclues i. >> hons ka'. >> ohio republicans are already trying to
expected to turn over. paul ryan, vice presidential, is not going anywhere. he will be the budget chairman again, it sounds like. he will ask for a waiver because he hit his term limits, but it is safe to say it will be granted. appropriations, hal rogers from kentucky, about as old bull as you could get -- prince of earmarks and a reformed non- earmarker will stay, and where health care and energy policy, a committee of jurisdiction there, that chairman will be staying another two years. ways and means, which might see a lot of action with fiscal cliff and tax reform, entitlement stuff, always goes through ways and means -- dave camp, like fred upton. judiciary committee, he will make a bid for the science committee. he will find himself in competition with james sensenbrenner, who indicated he is interested in that job as well. ralph hall, the chairman now, term limits. transportation and infrastructure headed by john mica, he is term-limited in that role, and there are a few people will have seniority and the either have committee assignments or are not looked upon as viable. i
differently. there rummy and paul ryan are good man and the leaders. i want to wish them and their families well. the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama and they have reelected the putt -- a republican majority. there is a mandate in yesterday's results and a mandate to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges will face as a nation. a message today is not one of confrontation but one of conviction. in the weeks and months ahead we face a series of tremendous challenges and opportunities. there is the fiscal cliff. a combination of spending cuts and tax increases mandated by law. congress will be asked to raise the nation's debt ceiling. legislation will be needed to keep the government running as a continuing resolution under which we are currently operating. amid this short-term hurdles we face the greatest challenge of all. a massive debt that is smothering growth and exceeding the entire size of our economy. there will be many who will say that we should confront the first of these challenges by letting the tax rates expire and pushing
quick point. one is very interesting role the paul ryan will play from this point on. paul ryan was simultaneously a loser and a winner on tuesday night. a winner because he won his house seat, a loser for the obvious reason but also for a couple of additional ones. it's kind of embarrassing when you put on the ticket and you can't carry your own state. but also his percentage and his own district went down significantly. at the same time there is no question that paul ryan, it was a national figure but far more recognized by those of us in the intellectual world and the cometary and then by others. paul, you go, could've walked through any airport outside of wisconsin or washington in america and might well have gone unnoticed. now obviously he is a significant national figure and include one in the mix for 2016. but he's in the next four that kind of conservative community that has dominated the primary and caucus process before. and going along with these kinds of compromises that include tax increases as part of a package, he comes a little trickier for him. and it also beco
, and remember when paul ryan after the 2010 elections, he was an icon for them, came back to the freshmen and said we cannot do the budget cuts we promised you right now. they threw him out of the room. they are not 6 " to be eager to do that. you can gain significant leverage by moving in that direction, and it would not surprise me that obama has a couple of cards up his sleeve to turn the bully pulpit into a more potent weapon in the next month. >> there are other ways of doing that. one is i think he will have simpson and bowles by his side on this. he has already committed to using that as the framework. there is evidence around that the white house has been working on revisions to that, giving it some specifics that would make it palatable to him and to most democrats as well, and there is also an effort to begin to pull out some major figures in the business community to be at his side. he would not go off the cliff without first having demonstrated what an agreement with book like -- would look like, and having it will support, including potentially some senate republicans with hi
it, but that and what paul ryan say they continue to have the sort of racism that was underlying the entire campaign. paul ryan saying they won because of urban areas? the president didn't win just in urban areas. it's just so insulting. it's just whining and excuse making. >> cry babies, sore losers. >> stephanie: thank you sean hannity. really that was stunning to me and doubling down on the 47% comment. it's so bitter and its insulting. you know, we have free stuff. that's exactly what rush limbaugh said, oey. more on the press conference in a moment. kids carbonite is how we keep this whole thing running around here. life can be unpredictable. roland back in new york, he's still putting his ceiling back together. he lost everything in his computer. that would be it for sexy liberal incorporated, my friend. power outage, virus you don't even have to live in a storm area. carbonite backs up everything, it's not if but when you have a computer disaster of some sort. i had a chardonnay-related incident, just saying. once you have carbonite you don't have to worry about backing ev
by an outlined by paul ryan. the important thing to understand is the american people understood that choice, and they voted for barack obama. they also voted for two more democratic senators. the senate will be much more progressive than it was in the last senate. in the states, the elected at least six democratic governors, potentially a seventh for washington state. they shifted state legislature the state of maine going from a republican-controlled legislature to a very democratic legislature. new york state, legislative shipped along with many others. the bottom line, in this election that was frank in many ways as a choice of austerity, people rejected it. it is very important that it be understood that this was not a to close to call election. president obama has a mandate from the american people to push back against a right-wing economic. he must. the problem is, i am not sure he will do that. i'm not sure he will do that as efficiently. i am most concerned perhaps that progressives will not fully recognize that. that they have a power to make real demand on this president. i was in
the republican congress. jon: why not endorse simpson-bowles? >> i love it. why didn't paul ryan, your standard-bearer, monica, why didn't he vote for simpson-bowles? he voted against it. >> because it didn't address health care spending, julie. >> you endorse bowles-simpson all of sudden there are problems with this or do you not? >> negotiating starting point when the president blew off. >> paul ryan voted against it. here is the bottom line if we keep doing what monica and i doing, we'll stick to our position and they will stick to their position, nothing is going to get done. both side need to come to the table. both sides need to compromise. >> willing to compromise on? >> for actually, on spending? >> absolutely, monica. not just spending but entitlement reform something he tried to do. >> he didn't try to do. >> grand bargain eric cantor and paul ryan tanked. >> first term the president fundamentally unserious about deficit reduction why we have these record four years of trillion dollars plus deficits. he was fundamentally unserious about tackling entitlement reform. there is nothing in
should we have picked mitt romney, well you did. should he have picked paul ryan? absolutely, he's a smart political figure and has a lot to taufer party and resonated well with the electorate. so all of that second guessing is typical washington inside crazeness. you need to hunker down and look at your ground game and your organization and your message and mess jers. we need mess jers who look like me. we need mess jers who are hispanic, asian american, women cross section of folks who represent communities all across the country. host: your successor of the republican national committee may seek a second term as chair of the party. what are you hearing? guest: i've heard people say that and that's a decision he will make on his own. and the party will judge whether losing two senate seats and the presidential and not much of a ground game is worthy of a reelection. host: a landslide loss for big money. voters ignored most of the outside ads but the danger of unlimited spending remains and a lot of focus on american cross roads and the money spenlt by carl rove. those people sh
made a difference. [applause] i just spoke with governor romney, and i congratulated him and paul ryan on a hard-fought campaign. [applause] we may have battled fiercely, but it's only because we love this country deeply, and we care so strongly about its future. from george to lenore to their son mitt, the romney family has chosen to give back to america through public service, and that is a legacy that we honor and applaud tonight. [applause] in the weeks ahead, i also look forward to sitting down with governor romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward. [applause] i want to thank my friend and partner of the last four years, america's happy warrior -- [applause] the best vice president anybody could ever hope for -- joe biden. [applause] and i wouldn't be the man i am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. [applause] let me say this publicly -- michelle, i have never loved you more. i have never been prouder to watch the rest of america fall in love with you, too, as our nation's first lady. [applause] sasha and malia, before o
. he is paul ryan's foil in on the budget committee in the house. again, a very young sort of take charge, charismatic leader, raised a lot of money. he ran the democratic congressional campaign committee for two cycles, so he has a lot of pull within the caucus. it's complicated a little bit by the fact that he and hoyer are friends, and they both represent the same state, they've run within the same circles. van hollen was the assistant to the speaker in nancy pelosi's last term as speaker, so that seems to be the surface that bubbles to the top as well. debbie wasserman schultz, the democratic committee chairwoman. nobody does that job for too long. she is looking for a way into leadership, but right now i hesitate to use terms like the smart money, but the smart money seems to be if pelosi wants to anoint a successor or get behind somebody, it would be van hollen. >> thank you. so that shakespearean drama makes what's going on in the senate look tame by comparison. what's going on if. >> i think it is pretty tame. obviously, with the senators adding two seats, harry reid, chuck
that paul ryan, who was a national figure but far more recognized by those of us in the intellectual world and the common period and by others he could have walked through any airport outside of wisconsin in america and might well have gone unnoticed by one or two people. now obviously he is a significant national figure and clearly one in the mix for 2016. but he is in the mix for that kind of conservative community that is dominated let primary caucus process before. going along with these compromises that include tax increases as part of a package becomes a little tricky for him and also becomes tricky for john boehner because now you have with the young guns one of them is an even more than the enormous national figure. finally, let me say the next few weeks are not just about the fiscal cliff. we have a farm bill waiting for action. a farm bill that passed with 74 votes and this is an interesting template as we talk about the fiscal cliff. in the senate model of bipartisanship even in the midst of the greatest drought since the great depression, the house didn't act. whether they can
not believe you have to change the basic structure of medicare and medicaid, as paul ryan does. you can find great savings by working with the inefficiencies. >> excuse me. john. >> speaker boehner talked about not increasing tax rates for small businesses. if that framework could be accomplished, what kind of revenues could be raised within that framework? could you consider the limit on the value of deductions that the president had in his budget? >> in terms of small businesses, how do you define a small business? that is one of the slippery slopes. do you define a multibillion- dollar entertainment company, sports team, or hedge fund as a small business because their structure happens to be a business structure? everyone agrees that what we really mean when we say small business, what the typical voter envisions, is the local dry cleaner, the manufacturer who has 15 people making widgets and stuff like that. nobody thinks they should have their taxes raised. if it is used as code for people who are very wealthy and really large businesses, do not fit the traditional definition, that is a
mccain had made the right choices. here comes amid romney. -- mitt romney. he goes to paul ryan who is popular with the tea party. he picked him. i think a lot of people say that paul ryan is not really capable. i've got a loaded question for you -- does america really respect a black individual to be their leader? guest: it is good to end on a loaded question. let me say first that john mccain, who was a great senator, and who was the original maverick and had an independent image, i think he had a very difficult time running into thousand eight following eight years of george w. bush. it was likely time for a democratic president to win so i think john mccain had a hard assignment. with respect to the question you asked, i would say that america elected an african-american, barack obama, and after one of the most intense and expensive and bitter campaigns of all time, reelected him. i would say that is a pretty strong statement of respect for him. some people have said to mate there will be a racial vote in this election. i think it is quite likely that the people who voted agains
are not expecting turnover. paul ryan is not going anywhere. he will be the budget chairman again it sounds like. he will ask for a waiver. it is safe to say that will be granted. the appropriations and hal rogers from kentucky who is about as old bull as you can get. old prince of earmarks and reformed nonearmarkers now is staying put. fred upton the chairman of the energy and commerce committee where a lot of health care and energy policy go through. the committee of jurisdiction there will be staying for another two years. and ways and -- any type of entitlement stuff. dave camp. he is not going anywhere either. where we are go to see significant committees where there will be turnover is the judiciary committee. he is term limited. he will make a bid for the science committee. he will find himself in competition. ralph hall, the chairman now is term limited. also the transportation and infrastructure committee. there are a few people who happen to have seniority but either have committee assignments or not looked upon as viable. we are passing the baton to a new generation. bill schuster is mak
we can get them. [inaudible] the role that you believe paul ryan should play in this fiscal negotiation, what would you like him to do? and how influential do you think you will be on your group? >> i mean, i think, i hope he's front and center with this group because, or in this debate. these probably are best spokesperson i have serious fiscal situation is and what needs to be done to remedy it, put us back on the path we can ask or sustain. i was, i think all of us were impressed with how paul handled himself on the campaign trail. so i hope he's right in in the middle of it. my anticipation is he is going to be, i assume that's where my colleagues are as well. >> if i can just add to that. when you step back and look at the election results and look at some of the conclusions that some have drawn, we are going to need clear voices of leadership to lay out an agenda for the future. i think all is a very important part of that. actually i was glad to see him come back into conference. it was an extremely well in -- warm welcome with a double standing ovation for him. but w
. i don't know if it is rubio vs hillary or paul ryan vs., you know, you name the candidate, the that is a lot thin for the foreseeable future. as you go from 2008 to 2010 to 2012, we have had a really wild ride. i don't believe there is any locking in. it was not even a generation ago that we talked about a republican majority. politics is a lot more dynamic than to just give a snapshot now and we all ought to rethink everything we believe in. >> i agree with what mark said to a point. i remember distinctly this day after that campaign of john kerry, driving down connecticut avenue, wondering where i will get a job and republicans will run the world forever and i will never be employed. being turned down by several lobbying firms and they have to be very good at this. i totally agree that the world changes. the difference here though is that some of these demographic changes -- the republican party will have to change. the hispanic population is not going away. the reason -- it is getting bigger and more states will get in play. the youth of the outcome until they change --
do the paul ryan budget, since he's still there. >> stephanie: yeah he's still there. >> caller: he's still there, and the fact that not only did republicans lose in the senate, but they lost to having some of the most liberal members. bernie sanders finally has people to play with in the senate. more people to play with, sips he had a couple before, but, you know, the idea that the country is not just shifting because of color, and because of where people are coming from, but because of what they believe. they actually, that you've shifted so far to the right that all people look at you and just are appalled. >> stephanie: right. i have to say, this was, you know your closing piece is the best advice you can give them. stop being jerks. as joe biden said, get out of the way. stop being gentlemen, to women immigrants gays, union members. just stop. if you don't understand how the gop strategy has affected you than you're damned to be a party of bodies in the road. if you haven't learned your lesson, you know nothing about the united states. >> caller: you know that i've not always b
utterance of tea party from mitt romney or paul ryan. that's right. you need to hug that tea party closer. >> i guess the tea party is with thing angst. >> what? >> stephanie: let's dive in the right-wing world. phil o'reillybill o'reilly. this is the deal. >> when you bunch it all up together, it was an entightment vote this year. american families earning less than $3,000 a year broke big for the president. 62%. so it's clear that left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama. big spending. >> gotcha. we still won es. there's that. >> stephanie: dennis miller. >> do i ever think it will go back in my lifetime to the other way? no i don't. this is the america that i saw from 18 to 58, no, i don't. is that the end of the world? no, it's not like i was in the shower and found a lump in my armpit. that's my fall-back position. i've got a great life but it's not the america that i've grown comfortable with. >> stephanie: wow. >> at least i didn't get cancer. nothing funnier than cancer. >> stephanie: sean hannity. >> we got to get rid of the immigration issue all together. it's eas
, that paul ryan look like one of mitrani's kids? right? didn't convey a sense of diversity. republicans are knee-jerk inherently opposed to diversity. that is actually the case. that's kind of one of the republicans, platform. it's not platform but republicans have a knee-jerk reaction to the. those multicultural imposing diversity on this? no way. i think the party, it needs a different look, doesn't? different spokesman, different people out there. so you're right, cubans and mexican-americans and puerto ricans. but i think they need to present a different look. >> sarah palin? in the back. >> good morning. eric schultz, among the political phenomenons that intrigues me the most i think ticket splitting seems to interest me a lot but i wanted to get sure thoughts on that. just looking at some of the results, montana elected a democratic governor, democratic senator, and the president only got 42%. in missouri, nixon and mccaskill, both democrats got 55%. yet obama topped out at 44 and lost every county except jefferson and st. louis and st. louis city. in west virginia, they elected h
have their own starting lineup. paul ryan who played the role of understudy in this campaign, new jersey governor chris christie even though some conservative republicans blame him for his high-octane embrace of president obama. florida senator marco rubio on a fast track with those who say he's a republican solution to their problem with hispanics. >> if i do a good job in the senate, if i'm a serious policy maker, i'll have a lot of opportunities to do different things. in politics, outside of politics. >> reporter: and there are some party leaders who still long for former florida governor jeb bush. and you can argue it's too early to even be thinking about 2016. but ask yourself, when did barack obama first start dreaming about becoming president? matt? >> we're really going to get into this, aren't we? >> how about jeb bush versus hillary clinton? >> oh, gosh, we're just getting over it. >> we can't help ourselves. thanks, good to see you. now we want to get a check of the weather and that nasty storm that's hit the northeast in the wake of sandy. al, good morning. >> good mo
-guessing, should we pick mitt romney and you did. should we have picked paul ryan? why not. he is a smart political figure. and has a lot to offer the party. and that resonated well with the electorate so that second- guessing is typical washington inside craziness. you need to hunker down and look at your ground game and organization and look at your message. you need to look at your messengers and we need messengers who look like me, messengers who are hispanic, asian americans, women. a cross-section of folks who represent communities around the country. what are you hearing -- what are you hearing? guest: i've heard people say that and that's a decision he will make on his own. and the party will judge whether losing two senate seats and the presidential and not much of a ground game is worthy of a reelection. host: a landslide loss for big money. voters ignored most of the outside ads but the danger of unlimited spending remains and a lot of focus on american cross roads and the money spent by carl rove. those people should ask for a refund guest: good luck with that. the return on investment
